Tickets & Violations
NAIT Parking Services maintains the Institute's parking facilities and endeavours to provide as many parking spaces and services for staff, students and visitors on campus. Because of the demand for parking spaces on campus, it is necessary to have a significant level of parking enforcement in order to protect the interests of paying permit holders.
NAIT Protective Services is responsible for parking enforcement and has the authority to issue City of Edmonton bylaw tickets and Province of Alberta violation tickets. Protective Services also has jurisdiction on the roadways surrounding NAIT campuses. Vehicles illegally parked at or immediately surrounding NAIT may be tagged and/or towed at the owner's expense.
The City of Edmonton maintains a high level of parking enforcement in residential areas around the Institute. With the arrival of the Metro Line and to reduce traffic around campus, members of the NAIT community are encouraged to use public transit whenever feasible.
Limitation of liability
Any motor vehicle parked, operated or driven on campus will be solely at the risk of the owner and operator. NAIT will not be liable for any damages occasioned to any such motor vehicle, the operator, other occupants thereof or any other person. Owners and operators of motor vehicles must ensure that they abide by federal, provincial and municipal legislation.
Where stalls are rented with electrical plug-ins, NAIT will endeavor to maintain reasonable and reliable services when temperatures drop below -10ºC. As NAIT is committed to energy conservation, the parking lots – as well as other mechanical systems – are subject to load-shedding and cycling. If any damage or inconvenience is occasioned to any motor vehicle being removed, towed away or impounded pursuant to these regulations, neither NAIT nor its servants or agents will be liable or responsible in any way whatsoever for the damage or inconvenience. Nothing in this paragraph will affect the liability of any independent contractor carrying out the removal, towing away or impoundment of the vehicle.

Payments can be made online, by mail or in person. Call the number located on the bottom of the ticket for more information.
Province of Alberta tickets
